Found this on deals.woot, don't shoot me if the product or site is terrible.

Don't know anything about the controllers themselves, but they have pretty decent reviews. According to the post there, coupon code "MLC247333030133NL1" drops the 2-pack down to $10.00.

meritline is great, only complaint is shipping speed (sometimes takes over a month....)

these are the HK knock off brand I have one and don't recommend it at all, the L3 and R3 needs to be pressed down hard for functioning

Do you have this specific Komodo one? Apparently it doesn't work with updated ps3's 3.55 and up? Is that true? Thanks.

When I go to check out it tells me page no longer exists. Basically not letting me order the product. Guess It's a good thing since I just read it doesn't work with the new update. Wanted one for my PC and one for my PS3. Guess im out of luck unless anyone else is having trouble and could help. thanks!

I wouldn't recommend this controller unless you want a cheap second controller you'll rarely use. Its got a very digital feel to it and it breaks down really easilly. Beware.

My main reason for this was for my little 10 and 12 year old cousins. I'd rather them mess with these rather than my DS3's. Do you know if they work with sony's updated firmware?

I thought it was only wireless 3rd party controllers that the new firmware blocked?

3.50 blocked my wired joystick.

I'd bet these are so cheap because they don't work.

ps2 controller + cheap adaptor = far superior controllers.

http://www.dealextre...b-converter-789

works with ps1 and ps2 controllers which are like $1-$5 each used.

This is what i use for controllers 3&4 when people are over.

Weird, my brother plugged his PC gamepad in and it worked like a charm.

I read depending on the quality there is some lag, did you experience this with this converter?

I've not experienced any on ps3 but honestly we both usually use the ds3s. Guests never complained.

Using it on the pc there definitely is no lag however, beat a bunch of emulated games using this.

I'm using a wired third party, I can confirm that this particular controller works. I have the latest update installed on PS3

Awesome, thanks everyone! Looks like a good pickup for those who need a cheap disposable controller for guests. Thanks again.

Love Meritline; shipping is sometimes slow, but you do get your stuff.

I use a (different than listed above) adapter from Dealextreme; PS2 controllers work great for Little Big Planet 1 + 2 . :)

All things considered, those controllers seem pretty good for the price. And of course it doubles as a PC controller as well. Does this have SIXAXIS/motion sensing support since some games require it?

I actually have one of these controllers and it works great on both my PS3 and PC. For the price, these are definitely worth it as backup controllers to let friends, or younger relatives to use. After a couple month usage, the analog sticks started to get "stuck" and made squeaking noises when there was movement. All that had to be done was apply some white lithium grease to the sticks' and they work perfectly fine now.

Last time I checked, they did, however, they don't break from use, they just get really buggy really fast for some reason.
